The Central Library functions as the primary information resource centre, and repository of all printed and e-resources for teaching and research activities at the institute. Apart from textbooks and recommended reading material prescribed for each course offered at the institute, the library houses a growing collection of research monographs, reports, multi-volume reference works, dictionaries, encyclopedias, handbooks, and so on. The library facilitates access to a number of journals through its participation in consortia, such as VTU Library Consortia. The library also subscribes to several e-journals directly from publishers as well as through reputed subscription agencies. At present, users can consult more than 87452 books (available on shelves), over 23000 titles and more than 16000 thousands of electronic books and journals.

The library operations are automated using NewGen (version 3.1.3 Discover) Library software. The Online Public Access Catalogue (OPAC) which is on public domain enables users to search documents in possession of the library. OPAC enables library users to know their checkout status, issue history and users can place online reservations, browse for new additions of books, journals subscribed. A separate e-resources section is provided in the library to browse CDs and DVDs of books, thesis and dissertations. The Library has developed institutional Digital Repository (IDR) using open source software. This step will greatly enhance the library efficiency in making the resources available to the academic community at large and also enable the institute participate in various inter-library initiatives at national and international levels.
Our Library is providing extensive research support services to the research scholars and faculty members. We are using Turnitin, a leading academic plagiarism tool to improve the quality of research publications. Library is constantly striving to identify and adopt the emerging academic and research support tools and helping the institute in achieving its vision and mission.

Digital Library is having 41 terminals to serve the students. The whole set of NPTEL course materials and video lectures are available in the digital library. Students can watch and download the course materials. Language Laboratory is also functioning satisfactorily.
The library is having a modest collection of Competitive Examinations books like IAS, IPS, GRE, TOEFL, GATE, important personality’s biographies and personality development etc. Open reading hall facility is made available for the stakeholders. The library is subscribing more than 90 print technical journals covering science and engineering comprehensively.

Vision and Mission
